Editor's Note 



hen I 
was a 
at Carleton in the 
70s there was no 
Alumni Associa- 
tion and no maga- 
zine. When I 
graduated in 1979, there was still no 
organization and still no magazine. Records 
were kept on a card wheel, there were no 
events, no programs, no branches or 
chapters, no homecoming, no reunions 
and no services. We've come a long way 
in 15 years. 

This issue of the magazine is devoted 
to the contributions Carleton alumni have 
made as volunteers to Carleton through 
the branches and chapters and in other 
significant ways. It also pays homage to 
the volunteer contributions made by Car- 
leton grads in their own communities. As 
you will discover, there are some very 
impressive things happening and we are 
all the richer for it. 

We are pleased to welcome Maude 
Barlow, BA/74, as our guest editorial 
writer, and Tony Macerollo, BA/86, as our 
principal recollector. As usual, our Edito- 
rial Advisory Committee members have 
been busy making major contributions to 
this magazine and we thank them for their 
efforts. We also welcome a new member 
to the committee, Mark Giberson, BJ/84, 
former Media Relations Officer at Carleton, 
who has returned after three years at St. 
Thomas University in Fredericton to work 
for a major communications firm in Ot- 

We welcome back to Ottawa Gail 
Larose, MA/70, who has begun her two 
year term as President of the Alumni 
Association. Gail is the focus of our cover 

The next issue of the magazine will be 
in your hands the first week in June— in 
time to whet your appetites for Home- 
coming events in the fall when both 
journalism and athletics are celebrating 
50-year anniversaries.

Editor, Carleton University Magazine 

Remember Architecture 


The Fall, 1994, issue of the Carleton University Magazine featured an article 
on the University's international academic linkages. The article enumerated and 
described international programs mounted by various schools and departments. 
Conspicuously absent was the School of Architecture-probably the most 
internationally active unit at Carleton. 

For close to 20 years, the School has mounted a Directed Studies Abroad 
( DSA) Program, sending students abroad for the first term of their fourth year. 
This program has continued to grow. This year 60 students attend four separate 
DSA programs in Rome, Prague, Istanbul and Detroit. Each group of 15 is 
accompanied by an Architecture faculty member. 

In addition to the DSA programs, the School has signed formal exchange 
agreements with the School of Architecture in Grenoble and the Technical 
University of Berlin. For the second year we are hosting a student from Grenoble 
as well as students and faculty members from the Technical University of Berlin. 
One of our third-year students is in Grenoble. 

There are a number of other international initiatives. Last year six students 
and one faculty member spent the month of August in Normandy, France, 
designing a monument to the Battle of Normandy. Also last year, four students 
spent a term in Dessau, at the Bauhaus, constructing a building, and another 
group of students travelled to Egypt to document a mosque. This year the School 
received funding from CIDA to send a group of eight students to India next 
summer to study development patterns in Darhamsala. 

Significant too is the School's new Master's program, designed to strengthen 
the international and cultural focus of the undergraduate program. 

With all of the above initiatives, it is distressing that the School of Architecture 
was not included in the "International Expertise" article.

Director, School of Architecture 

Support: it's not always money 

When you graduate from university, there are usually 
two things on your mind: finding a job and paying off your 
student loan. Financial support to the University is not 
usually a top priority, but the good memories of our years 
at Carleton often draw us back to help the University in 
a variety of ways. 

Like all universities, Carleton depends on financial 
support from corporations and individuals-that is the 
economic reality in which we live. But money is not the only type of support 
which makes Carleton the dynamic learning institution that it is. The involve- 
ment of volunteers is perhaps one of Carleton's biggest assets. 

I have been fortunate to have been a member of the Editorial Advisory 
Committee for the last three years. The time I have spent learning about the 
University, its faculty, and its dedicated staff, through my work with the 
Committee , have been hours well spent. 

The work of the Committee has allowed me to keep in touch with the 
University and to see first-hand the importance of alumni involvement to the 
continued success of Carleton. For those of you who, for whatever reason, are 
unable to support the University financially, I urge you to give something more 
precious than your money — give of your time.

Carleton excels in service to the community 

ajor universities traditionally 
consider their roles as con- 
sisting of three inter-related 
functions: teaching, research, and com- 
munity service. The last often receives 
less public attention than it deserves. 
\ /./■ fe| At Carleton, we serve the National 
Capital Region in many direct ways- 
for example, through our School of Continuing Education, 
faculty and student consulting activities and professional 
services, mini-courses and camps for children, representa- 
tion on task forces and advisory boards for government 
agencies and the private sector, offering cultural and athletic 
programming to the Ottawa community, hosting confer- 
ences and providing access for the general public to our 
campus facilities and services. The University's economic 
impact on its community amounts to about one-third of a 
billion dollars per year (more in periods of construction). 

Indirectly, Carleton has an even greater outreach through 
the volunteerism of its faculty, staff, students and alumni. 
Each year, our students raise over $100,000 in cash for major 
charities, and they give even more in volunteer time to 
countless philanthropic projects in our area. Our employees 

donate thousands of volunteer hours to the community as 
canvassers, coaches, choir members, group leaders, hospital 
and church volunteers and through more than 50 United Way 
agencies~to name but a few. 

By far the largest component of the Carleton family is the 
alumni group-now 62,000 strong-whose contributions are 
improving the quality of life in many hundreds of commu- 
nities across Canada and around the world. In so doing, these 
grads are extending the reach of the University's community 
service function. 

We on campus benefit directly from alumni volunteer 
contributions to the University itself through such means as 
service on the Board of Governors, membership on Presi- 
dential Advisory Councils, participation on various task 
forces and University committees, leadership in fundraising 
campaigns, and especially through the work of the 34- 
member National Alumni Council. 

I am proud of the fine reputation for community service that 
Carleton has gained in Ottawa and elsewhere through the 
volunteer efforts of our immediate and extended family ^0

New alumni President extends greetings 


t gives me great pleasure to extend 
greetings for the New Year as the 
new President of your Alumni As- 
sociation. Although this is a new role 
for me within the University, I have 
been involved with Carleton in one 
way or another for close to 35 years, 
first as a student, then as a teaching 
assistant and now as a dedicated alumna. It is clear that 
Carleton remains an important part of my life. 

I know that most alumni have had a positive experience 
at Carleton although it does not strike us quite so forcibly 
until we are at some distance from the campus. For the past 
nine months I have been working with the Commonwealth 
Secretariat's Human Resource Development Division in 
London, England, helping to organize the 12th Conference 
of Commonwealth Education Ministers. Long months of 
planning finally culminated in a successful conference in late 
November, 1994, in Islamabad, Pakistan. 

It was a resounding success, not least because of the 
presence of a strong South African delegation, the first to 
attend an education ministers' conference in 33 years. The 
other factor was the warmth and generosity of the Pakistani 

I am also pleased to report that I was not the only Carleton 
alumna in Islamabad, once again proving how very small the 
world really is. More important, the experiences exchanged 
and the lessons learned by education ministers and their 
officials from 44 Commonwealth countries parallel those of 
Carleton and the conclusions of the President's Commission 
on the Second-Half-Century on which I had the good fortune 
to sit. Quality in research and teaching, selectivity in admis- 
sions with deliberate efforts to promote equity, diversifica- 
tion in funding, efficiency in resource use, responsiveness to 
social demand, experiments with new and imaginative forms 
of educational delivery, new partnerships-this was the 
substance of the education ministers' discussions in Islamabad 
just as it has been over the past three years at Carleton. 

I am very conscious just how much Carleton is in the 
world and the world is in Carleton. This is possible through 
the faculty, students, staff and alumni upon whose collective 
expertise Carleton may call. I am very proud to be associated 
with Carleton which has taken seriously the universality of 
its educational mission. I hope to serve the University and my 
fellow alumni, not only as President over the next two years, 
but over all the years to come.

^^•uest Editorial 

what it means to be 

by Maude Barlow 

Peace, order and good government. For 
more than a century, Canadians have used 
these three principles as the foundation 
upon which to build our society. 

e have chosen community over 
unbridled individualism; co- 
operation over competition. 
We have seen the wisdom of interde- 
pendence, and as a result, we have suc- 
ceeded in creating a society that the 
United Nations has singled out as the best 
in the world. 

Sadly, it is a society that is dangerously 
at risk. And if Canadians hope to preserve 
the values that have distinguished us as a 
people and the society we have worked 
so hard together to create, it's time that we 
once again take command of our own 

Our governments, both federal and 
provincial, have chosen to follow an 
agenda set down by a handful of 
transnational corporations. The new 
globalism is a euphemism for the dra- 
matic transfer of power from citizens — 
represented by their democratically elected 
governments — to a corporate elite that is 
answerable only to its shareholders. It is 
transforming our world, bringing about 
changes that are every bit as dramatic as 
the Agricultural and Industrial Revolu- 

tions. It is bankmpting nations, disman- 
tling social programs and creating a glo- 
bal underclass. It is raping the planet. 

We are told by our governments that 
these changes are inevitable and that 
Canada will be left behind if it doesn't 
create a climate more favourable to busi- 

We are told that our social services are 
in need of a major overhaul, that they've 
become unaffordable. We are told that 
the public sector — those things that we 
do together — is inherently inferior to the 
private sector — those things that are done 
by individuals driven by the profit motive. 
We are told that competition is superior to 
cooperation and that somehow, a system 
in which we are always at odds with one 
another will lead us to greater prosperity. 

What we aren't told is that, by its own 
estimation, the federal government has 
been losing $25 billion a year through tax 
breaks to large corporations and wealthy 
individuals. We aren't told that in the 
1950s taxes were borne equally by corpo- 
rations and individuals, but that today 
corporations account for just 5.5 percent 

of all tax revenues collected in Canada. 
We aren't told about Statistics Canada 
studies that show that 94 percent of the 
debt that has accumulated since 1981 is 
the result of tax breaks to the wealthy and 
the counterproductive policy of high in- 
terest rates. 

Before we set about to dismantle our 
social programs and reinvent what it 
means to be Canadian, perhaps we should 
think about what we stand to lose and just 
how little we have to gain. 

If, as the United Nations has said, 
Canada is the best country in the world in 
which to live, what is it that makes us so? 
If the reason for this designation is our 
sense of shared responsibility and con- 
cern for one another — expressed through 
our social programs, a fair tax system and 
an economy that has provided room for 
both public and private enterprise — maybe 
it's time to challenge what is being passed 
off as conventional wisdom. 

Those of us who have had the benefit 
of a university education have a special 
responsibility. We owe it to ourselves, to 
our children and to the men and women 
who made that education possible to search 
for the truth, to develop an informed 
opinion and to take charge of our collec- 
tive future. We are, by definition, leaders. 
If the hard-earned rights of our parents and 
grandparents are not to be dismantled, our 
voices are needed now.^j*

chair of the Council of Canadians, an 
independent, non-partisan, public inter- 
est organization with more than 30,000 
members and supporters across Canada.

ssociation News 

Carleton joins 
Bell Ambassador 

Carleton has joined an exciting new 
program with Bell Canada that will result 
in an expanded program for alumni and 
enhanced revenues for the University's 
upcoming fundraising campaign. 

Carleton became the fifth university in 
Ontario to join the Bell Ambassador Pro- 
gram when representatives of Bell and 
the University signed a contract Septem- 
ber 1. Other Ontario universities in the 
plan are McMaster, Waterloo, Trent, and 

What this means to Carleton and the 
other universities is quite simply, more 
money. According to the contract, Bell 
pays Carleton four percent of all long 
distance calls made by alumni and 
students who are in the plan. And the 
good thing about this is that there are 
already over 7,000 alumni and students 
in the plan. They are there because 
they currently belong to an existing 
Bell Real Plus Savings Plan and were 
automatically switched over to the Car- 
leton Bell Ambassador Plan when Car- 
leton signed on. 

All those Carleton subscribers will 
continue to enjoy savings on long dis- 
tance calls and at the same time have the 
satisfaction of knowing that they are also 
making it possible for Bell to turn money 
over to Carleton. 

Carleton chose Bell over other long 
distance suppliers in the competition 
for its business for a number of rea- 
sons: revenues are based on the exist- 
ing subscriber base, thereby eliminat- 
ing the initial marketing phase and 
making revenues higher; because, af- 
ter investigation, it was shown that Bell 
offered a host of supports and services 
unequaled by competitors; because of 
Bell's longevity and solid reputation; 
and not the least, because of Bell's 
tremendous financial support to Carle- 
ton and the productive academic links 
Carleton professors and students have 
had over many years. 

You might well ask-what does Bell 
get out of this? Bell maintains its existing 
subscribers and has the opportunity to 
enlist more alumni and students because 
of its affinity with the University.

™ At a ceremor 


Carleton grads celebrating 
Homecoming '94 were blown 
away by the incredible per- 
formance of Elwood Blues 
(alias Dan Aykroyd) and his 
super-talented International 
Soul Rider Revue. 

The sold out benefit per- 
formance at the National Arts 
Centre October 15 raised 
$150,000 for Carleton. It was 
the highlight of Homecoming 
and the centrepiece of a rous- 
ing personal homecoming for 
Dan Aykroyd. 

Dr. Dan, as he is now affec- 
tionately known at Carleton, 
rolled into Ottawa on October 
13, a day officially proclaimed 
"Dan Aykroyd Day" by the Mayor 
of Ottawa, Jackie Holtzman. 
He rode his favourite Harley 
and was accompanied by an 
entourage of outriders, family, 
and friends. 

At a ceremony at the World 
Exchange Plaza which attracted 
thousands of local citizens, Dr. 
Dan was awarded the Key to 
the City. He attended a special 
premiere of his controversial 
new comedy Exit to Eden. He 
signed hundreds of autographs, 
spoke at an anti-Reform rally 
on Parliament Hill, and visited 
old friends, and old haunts. 
But most of all he came 

Winter 1995 • Carleton University Magazine • Page 6 


home to Carleton. 

On October 14, he turned 
up at the Carleton gym for the 
half-time ceremonies at the 
annual Oldtimers alumni-stu- 
dent basketball game and pre- 
sented the 1964-65 third- 
place Canadian Championship 
banner to seven members of 
that winning team. 

On his favourite hog, he 
roared over to the Alumni Thea- 
tre for the Sock'n' Buskin and 
Rim Studies reunion, and was 
entertained by student improv 

and an amazing performance 
by Blues Brothers impersona- 
tors and Carleton students 
Kevin Waghorn and John Rizk. 

Then it was off to the Animal 
Dance where Dan Aykroyd, Jim 
Belushi and other Blues Broth- 
ers musicians rapped with Bruce 
and the Burgers and the grads 
of '69 and tested their dancing 
feet on some 60's classics. 

October 15 was the big day 
and the Blues Brothers concert 
was the focus. Dr. Dan re- 
cruited some of the finest blues 
musicians in the world, includ- 
ing such "originals" as Steve 

S>\uee Impereonatore Kevin Waghorn and John 
with the original. 

Cropper, Donald Dunn and Matt 
Murphy. Jim Belushi took on 
the role of Brother Z Blues, 
Paul Shaffer kept the gang to- 
gether, and Eddie Floyd of Stax- 
Volt fame joined Larry Thurston 
on vocals. 

Not one of the 2,400 lucky 
ticket holders will forget the 
wild and rollicking performance. 
Critics called the Blues Broth- 
ers band "the finest R and B 
band still playing" and praised 

Aykroyd's talent and leader- 
ship. It was a night of amazing 
pride and togetherness that 
had grads, young and old, on 
their feet cheering, laughing 
and crying. 

When Dan Aykroyd roared 
out of town Sunday morning he 
left his alma mater richer in 
every way.

Gail Larose: 

Alumni Association President emotionally and 
intellectually attached to Carleton 

by Mary Huband 

Carleton's new Alumni Association President has re- 
turned to Ottawa after a nine-month assignment with 
the Commonwealth Secretariat in London, England. 
Gail Larose, MA/70, spent the last several months organizing 
a major conference on the changing role of the state in education 
for Commonwealth Education Ministers in 51 countries. The 
conference was held in Islamabad, Pakistan, in November. 

Now that she is back in the familiar surroundings of Ottawa 
and Carleton, Gail is setting her mind to the challenges of 
leading the University's 62,000-member Alumni Association for 
the next two years. 

She's also skiing the snowy slopes of the Gatineau Hills, 
catching up on her reading — particularly the novels of A.S. 
Byatt — and enjoying time with her husband, Ken, and son 
Christian before taking on another permanent assignment. 

For Gail Larose, education and all its many aspects has been 
the focus of her professional and private life for many years. 
That's why her new volunteer role as Carleton's alumni presi- 
dent excites her. "I've been emotionally and intellectually 
attached to education in general, and Carleton in particular, 

since the early '60s," she says. 

After graduating from Carleton with an honours degree in 
French (and definitely a minor in Sock'n'Buskin, she affirms), 
she met Ken, a fellow Carleton alumnus and son of former Vice- 
President Ab Larose. At the time, she was appearing in a Winter 
Palace production of The Duchess of Malfi at Le Hibou. "It was 
instant," she recalls. "We were married in six weeks and flew off 
to Edinburgh where Ken worked on a graduate degree in 
philosophy." Gail continued to act and do "odd jobs" and has 
fond memories of their impoverished student life in Scotland's 

When they returned to Ottawa, Ken worked as an assistant 
producer at the CBC and lecturer in philosophy at Carleton. "I 
completed my master's degree in French, and got a job in the 
awards division of the Association of Universities and Colleges 
of Canada (AUCC)," she explains. It seemed the Laroses were 
inextricably tied to things educational. Gail also taught French 
as a sessional lecturer at Carleton, and in 1974 was hired as the 
first woman director at the University of Ottawa-in Student 
Financial Assistance.

Gail's career in education continued 
with another appointment to the AUCC in 
1974, this time to the association's Inter- 
national Relations Division. After a brief 
period as a full-time mother to Christian, 
born in 1976, she eventually became 
director of the division. In 1983, she was 
appointed by the Department of Foreign 
Affairs as Secretary to the Commonwealth 
Scholarship and Fellowship Committee. 

From 1983-86 Gail served as Director 
of the International Relations and Schol- 
arship Administration Division of AUCC. 
Then came an exciting opportunity to jet 
off to London to the Commonwealth 
Secretariat where for four years she suc- 
cessfully juggled her career and family as 
she worked in the Higher Education Unit 
of the Human Resources Development 
Group. During that time, she organized, 
attended and gave papers at various edu- 
cational conferences in England and else- 
where. "Those were amazing and enrich- 
ing years for all of us," she says, "and 
some of our happiest memories as a 
family are related to our visits together in 
Britain and Europe." 

It was during those London years that 
the Carleton alumni initiative really took 
off. When Gail returned to Ottawa in 1990 
the little alumni operation she remem- 
bered was unrecognizable. 

"When I volunteered to serve on the 
Alumni Council in the early '80s we 
stmggled to make things happen, but the 
alumni in those days did not have a 
profile, nor were there resources to mount 
a significant program for grads." 

All that had changed. Gail was back in 
a new position as Director of Research 
Communication and International Rela- 
tions for the Social Sciences and Humani- 
ties Research Council (SSHRC). She also 
served as an alumni volunteer at Carleton 
and discovered that the alumni office was 
now adequately resourced and had a 
mandate to develop branches and chap- 
ters in Ottawa and elsewhere. 

In 1992, the 50th anniversary of the 
University, Gail was asked to serve as an 
alumni member of the President's Com- 
mission on the Second -Half-Century, and 
she played a prominent role in the com- 
mission's deliberations and in writing its 

"I believe that Carleton grads have a 
vital role to play in assisting the University 
in its policy decisions. We speak with 
authority and experience. I believe we 

(Above) Gail and Ken Larose in Kensing- 
ton Park, London, in the 1980s. (Right) 
Gail on the glacier at Val Thorens, France, 

are already speaking with some influence 
through the Board of Governors, the 
Presidential Advisory groups, and through 
our various branches, chapters and the 
National Alumni Council." 

Gail's aim as President of the Alumni 
Association is to help consolidate that 
strength, and to take the University's 
message to more grads. "We don't realize 
what a strong presence our University has 
in the international and national commu- 
nity," she says. Properly nurtured and 
informed, that presence leads to support 
for Carleton, she believes. 

Gail is proud of Carleton's historic 
policy on accessibility which has pro- 
vided opportunities for post secondary 
education to under-achievers, women, 
seniors, foreign students and those with 
physical and learning disabilities. "Acces- 
sibility and excellence can and should go 
together," she says. 

The University is entering another 
major fundraising campaign. The Alumni 
Association's new president is mindful of 
the challenge that brings to the associa- 
tion and all its members. "Our grads have 
matured and I believe their respect for 
Carleton has increased. I would expect 
that would translate into tangible support 
for Carleton in the years to come," she 

She says she's happy to be home once 
again in Ottawa with husband Ken, who 
now owns a successful translating busi- 
ness, and son Christian, in his final year at 
Lisgar Collegiate (where his mother and 
grandfather Ab Larose both graduated). 
Gail will continue to pursue her interests 
in theatre, books, the piano, skiing, ten- 
nis, and travel. 

And most important for Carleton's 
62,000 alumni, Gail Larose is also looking 
forward to leading the Alumni Associa- 
tion through very exciting times. "With 
the help of our wonderful 34-person 
National Alumni Council, I expect to 
represent our members and articulate 
their ideas and their support on many 
occasions in the next two years."

Carleton Alumni 

Making a difference next door 
and around the world 

by Mark Giberson 

Volunteers. They're people making a difference — breath- 
ing new life and vitality into our communities, giving 
their time and expertise to our professional organiza- 
tions, tackling the issues of the day and helping us to see one 
another in a different light. 

Carleton alumni are among the best. They're reaching out 
into the community to reshape our world. And often, they got 
their start right on campus. 

Philip Capobianco, BAHons/91, is a case in point. A matter 
of weeks after beginning his studies at Carleton in the fall of 
1986, the Toronto native was elected president of the Universi- 
ty's Political Science Forum, one of the largest academic 
societies on campus. Later he went on to form the Canadian 
Students Association at Carleton. 

Through the association, Capobianco brought in speakers 
like Ontario Lieutenant Governor Lincoln Alexander. But he 
says the highlight came when he brought former prime minister 
Joe Clark to campus during the 1988 federal election campaign. 
"We had close to 400 students out to hear him," says Capobianco. 
"It was quite the experience." 

When Capobianco graduated from Carleton in 1989 with 
a Bachelor of Arts, he received a service award from the 
University's student association in recognition of his volun- 
teer work at Carleton. He also received the University's C.V. 
Hotson Memorial Scholarship for his contribution to student 

He returned to Carleton for an honours degree in the fall of 
1989- Not long after that, a series of newspaper reports 
suggesting that a Mafia-sponsored crime wave was sweeping 
through Ottawa's Little Italy led Capobianco to stand up for his 
community. His spirited defense of Italian-Canadians was 
broadcast on the local CBC radio station. And before long, he 
was being asked to spearhead a human rights committee for the 
Congress of Italian Canadians. 

Since then, the group has been working with police, 
members of the news media and other community-based 
organizations to promote understanding and to dispel some of 
the misconceptions people have about members of the Italian- 
Canadian community. 

The 27-year old is equally passionate about helping dispel 
some of the popular myths about members of his own Genera- 
tion X. In 1991, he took it upon himself to present their case 
before a select committee of the Ontario legislature. 

Then, last fall, he called in to an Ottawa radio talk show to 
challenge the host of the program who was haranguing about 
today's do-nothing young people. "The guy was really misin- 
formed," says Capobianco. "I suggested that he and his listeners 
should get their facts straight and the next thing you know, he 
invited me to come on the show." 

Capobianco appeared on the program a couple of weeks later. 

Today, Capobianco is completing an education degree while 
continuing to work as a real-estate broker in Ottawa. He says 
that once he has finished his education he may set his sights on 
a career in public service. 

"I think we need politicians who are interested in improving 
peoples' lives. I've always considered public service a voca- 
tion — something you dedicate your life to. My experience 
seems to be leading me in that direction and I'd really welcome 
the opportunity of serving my community. To my mind, service 
is its own reward." 

That thought is likely to be shared by Nancy Johnstone, 
MSW/56. Since 1973, Johnstone has served as director of Youth 
Guidance, a social service agency that's been making a name for 
itself as a result of its work with inner city kids in Chicago. 

Johnstone refers to Youth Guidance as her "real" job. But for 
more than a decade she's also been the volunteer executive 
director of Women in Charge-a group that Johnstone founded 
in 1983 to support the thousands of women who work in 

Winter 1995* Carleton University Magazine »Page 10 

Chicago-area non-profit organizations. 

Recalls Johnstone, "In the early '80s 
I was chairing a committee for the 
University of Chicago's school of social 
service administration. The school had 
just added management as an area of 
specialization within its master's de- 
gree program and officials at the school 
were interested in looking at the spe- 
cific needs of the women who were in 
the program. I put together a commit- 
tee, and we worked on the issue for a 
year or so. It was really a lot of fun." 

But for Johnstone, the fun was just 
beginning. "Around 1983, we got the idea 
of putting on a conference for these 
women and the thousands of others whom 
we knew were working with non-profit 
organizations. Oh, we had great plans, 
but not much money." 

The money for the conference came in 
the form of a $3,000 personal loan that 
Johnstone arranged with a friend in the 
banking business. 

"Our break-even point for the confer- 
ence was 300 registrants and we were 
very nervous," she recalls. "But when the 
registrations topped 1,100 we not only 
had to cut them off, we knew that some- 
thing very significant had been born." 

That was the beginning of Women 
in Charge, and Johnstone and her col- 
leagues have been organizing biennial 
conferences, workshops and seminars 
ever since. "We pull in close to a 
thousand people to our conferences 
every two years," says Johnstone. "It's 
a tiny, little organization with a huge 
constituency. We try to provide these 
women with what they need in terms 
of support, training and networking to 
advance their careers in the non-profit 
sector. I'm convinced we're serving a 
real need." 

And Johnstone isn't the only one who 
thinks so. Earlier this year the University 
of Chicago awarded her a public service 
citation for exemplary leadership in vol- 
untary activities, largely for her work with 
Women in Charge. 

Ruta Skelton, BJ/76, is another Carle- 
ton alumna who knows something about 
volunteer leadership. Last June, she was 
elected chair of the International Associa- 
tion of Business Communicators (IABC) — 
a worldwide organization representing 
some 12,000 communication and public 
relations professionals in more than 40 

Philip Capobianco 

Nancy Johnstone 

In her "real" job, Skelton is a principal 
with Towers Perrin — an international 
human resource consulting firm with 
Canadian offices in Montreal, Toronto, 
Calgary and Vancouver. Skelton is re- 
sponsible for the company's Canadian 
communication business. 

"As IABC chair, I'm spending an aver- 
age of one day out of every five on 
association business. My weekends and 
whatever free time I used to have are 
pretty much chewed up by my IABC 
commitments as well," she says. 

Leading an international organization 
also means a lot of travel. For example, 
Skelton's recent speaking engagements 
have involved trips to Los Angeles and 
London, England, where she made pres- 
entations to the Conference Board in both 
cities. She's also becoming very much at 
home in San Francisco, the site of IABC's 
world headquarters. "Since joining the 
association in 1980, I'd say I've made about 
30 trips to the city by the bay," she laughs. 

Skelton has held a series of leadership 
positions within IABC — as president of the 
organization's Toronto chapter, as chair of 
the association's international awards pro- 
gram and, for two terms, as a member of 
IABC's international executive board. 

"People are always asking me why I 
put so much of my time and energy 
into IABC. I guess my professional 
development hasn't come about from 
going to conferences and seminars, but 
from serving as a leader. I've always 
been able to bring back a lot of what 
I've learned and apply it to my work." 

Nevertheless, Skelton is not afraid to 
say that her volunteer commitments 
amount to something of a juggling act. "I 
have two young sons," she says. "One is 
six and the other is 16 months. I'm 
fortunate in having an excellent support 
network. My husband is great, and I have 
a wonderful mother-in-law who's more 
than willing to pop in to help." 

From talking to Skelton, you get the 
sense that she, like Johnstone and 
Capobianco, is motivated from a deep 
sense of commitment and from the sheer 
joy of making a difference. "It's a sacrifice 
in some ways, but in the long run, it's 
worth it," says Skelton. "But more to the 
point, it's fun."'

They're in our classrooms and in our 
courtrooms. They're on our televi- 
sion sets and radio stations. They're 
in government and corporate offices, in 
banks, and businesses scattered all across 
the world. 

Diverse in age and profession, this 
group of men and women all have in 
common one important factor— they're 
Carleton alumni volunteers. 

Alumni involvement at Carleton is 
growing at a record-breaking rate. Just 10 
years ago, the University's fledgling Alumni 
Association consisted of a small nucleus 
of Ottawa grads who met informally to 
organize social events. Few people even 
knew the organization existed. 

Today the Association's volunteer corps 
has grown to include 12 branches in 
major cities across Canada, 10 chapters, 
and five affiliate groups worldwide. Re- 
quests for affiliate status have recently 
come in from as far away as Japan and the 

Alumni branch and chapter volunteers 
also make up Carleton's 34-member Na- 
tional Alumni Council which has become 
the largest, and perhaps the most influ- 
ential, it's ever been. As well as being the 
official spokespersons for the Associa- 
tion, council members are charged with 
considering and establishing Association 
policy, and advising the University on all 
matters relating to alumni. 

Carleton grads are gaining influence 
in other ways as well. In 1991, Presiden- 
tial Advisory Councils were established in 
eight major cities across Canada as a 
forum for community members to help 
the President deal with the issues facing 
the University. Membership on the Coun- 
cils is voluntary. Councils are comprised 
of about 20 business and professional 
leaders from each city and alumni ac- 
count for 80 percent of the membership. 

Alumni were also major contributors 
to the President's 1992 Commission on 
the Second-Half-Century. Six alumni com- 
missioners—Maureen O'Neil, BA/64 
(Chair); Stuart Adam, MA/67; Gail Larose, 
MA/70; Bob Laughton, BA/59; J.L Humar, 
PhD/74; J.S. Wight, PhD/76 and two 
alumni staff members, Jill Vickers, 
BAHons/65 and Immelda Mulvihill, MA/ 
87— volunteered their time and energy "to 
study and seek consensus on the charac- 
ter and purpose of Carleton University 
and to develop guidelines for future poli- 
cies, plans and decisions." (The student 
cohort, consisting of Rupert Gordon, Lucy 
Watson, Samantha Sheen and Baldish 
Toor are now or soon will be alumni). 
The resulting report is considered to be 
an important document in helping to 
shape Carleton's future. 

The University's Board of Governors 
reflects a growing alumni presence as 
well. The current slate of appointments 

Winter 1995 • Carleton University -Magazine «Page 12 

includes two Carleton students and 16 
Carleton grads including Chairperson 
Maureen O'Neil. This represents more 
than half the seats on the board. 

Whether it's organizing branch/chapter 
events, assisting with Carleton's diploma 
framing service, or sitting on an executive 
committee, the opportunities for alumni 
involvement are endless. Why are all of 
these Carleton graduates willing to give 
back to their alma mater? Their motivations 
for getting involved seem to be as diverse 
as the grads themselves. 

Thirty-one year-old Dave Thomson, 
MCS/93, says he became a volunteer 
because he felt he owed more to Carleton 
than the tuition he paid. "What Carleton 
gave to me is my life - my career, my 
friends," he says. "I feel a very strong 
attachment to Carleton." 

A manager of Development Environ- 
ments at Object Technology International 
in Ottawa, Ontario, Dave joined the Alumni 
Association in 1992 as a member of the 
Homecoming Committee. He says the 
positive social experience he's gained is 
what keeps him coming back for more. 
He has since chaired the committee two 
years in a row and currently holds a seat 
on the National Alumni Council through 
his membership in the Ottawa Branch. 

"I like the idea of alumni being the 
ambassadors of the University," Dave 
says. "I'm proud to be a Carleton grad and 
I want to give something back some- 

One of the newest alumni volunteers 
is Mark Horton, BA/93, a prison case- 
worker with Corrections Canada in King- 
ston, Ontario. A few short months ago, 
Mark's only contact with the Alumni As- 
sociation had been to rent a gown and 
hood for graduation photos. Today, the 
24 year-old graduate of Carleton's crimi- 
nology program is president of the newly- 
created Kingston branch and a member 
of the National Alumni Council. 

Mark says his new role with the Alumni 
Association is a great way to meet people 
and establish valuable connections. 
"I'm happy I got involved," he says. "And 
I'm convinced that alumni can put them- 
selves in a position to make a big contri- 
bution to the direction the University 

Mark has maintained close ties to 
Carleton since graduating. His two room- 
mates and many of his co-workers are 
Carleton alumni. He proudly displays a 

Carleton sticker on his car and still wears 
his University jacket. 

Gerard Buss, BA/73, has always been 
a visible supporter of his alma mater. On 
any given day in London, Ontario, you'll 
find him sporting a Carleton baseball cap 
or an alumni t-shirt or flashing his Univer- 
sity MasterCard. 

"Quite frankly I'm proud of Carleton 
and I like to broadcast it," he says. 

Gerard has also been a dedicated 
volunteer with the Alumni Association 
since 1988. For three years he organized 
the successful "Alumni Fun Runs" for 
Homecoming Weekend and was a mem- 
ber of the Ottawa Branch. 

In 1992, when Standard Life trans- 
ferred Gerard to London as branch man- 
ager, he refused to relinquish his ties to 
his home town university. Instead, he 
offered to launch a new Southern Ontario 
Alumni Branch of which he is currently 
president. He continues to serve on the 
National Alumni Council and also chairs 
the Association's services committee. 

"I always appreciated the fact that I got 
a good education at Carleton," Gerard 
says. "By getting involved, I feel I can 
help send the message that Carleton is a 
good university. Giving back is an impor- 
tant issue for me." 

Alumni involvement stretches from coast 
to coast. Bob Hindson, BSc/66, of Vancou- 
ver, British Columbia, has been involved 
with the University in many volunteer 
capacities since 1987. In addition to a 

financial commitment, Bob has donated 
his time and energy as a former president 
of the Vancouver branch, as host of the 
University's Send-Off program for new 
students, and more recently, as a member 
of the Presidential Advisory Council. 

He says he's grateful to Carleton for 
giving him an opportunity for a university 
education. As a 21 year-old technical 
school graduate without his Grade 13, 
Bob found his career choices limited in 
the 1960s. Other universities refused his 
application, but Carleton's open admis- 
sions policy gave him the chance to prove 

Today, the Vice-President of Aber 
Resources Ltd. says, "I still feel I owe the 
school. I feel very strongly that Carleton 
played a large part in my success and in 
my life as a whole." 

Volunteering, he adds, is simply a fun 
way of giving something back to his alma 
mater. "It's another interest in my life 
besides work, family and sport, and I get 
satisfaction in knowing that I'm helping a 
good cause." 

As Carleton's network of alumni vol- 
unteers continues to grow, so too does 
the reputation and success of the Univer- 
sity. Carleton President Robin Farquhar 
says, "We have been gratified to discover 
the tremendous dedication and commit- 
ment to Carleton. An impressive number 
of influential Canadians have an extremely 
high regard for Carleton and a real desire 
to help us. 

The new alumni branch in Kingston was launched in November 1994. The branch's 
new executive includes, from left, Derek Waddingham, BA/86, president Mark 
Horton, BA/93, Marina Pinder, BAHons/89, Frank Pinder, BEng/88 and Ann 
Rombough, BA/66.

Alumni Profile 

Keith Sjogren 

Former Buskinite 
is back as a 

by Dtanne Salt 

\ 'f 'W ' I mi Keith Sjogren, HA 71, emigrated from England in 
\ ' A ' 1 ( Xk, lie arrived in Ottawa and registered for political 
^K^m science at Carleton University. In a voice that still 
echoes a British accent, he admits not having "any real idea of the 
reputation of Canadian universities or anything like that at all." 

And like most students anxious to meet new people, Keith 
was quick to become involved in campus activities. 

Twenty-seven years later, Keith has continued his involve- 
ment with the University, but in a different way. His interest is 
no longer amateur theatre as it once was, and he's no longer "just 
your average student." 

At 49, Keith is the President and Chief Operating Officer of 
CIBC Securities Inc., the fifth largest mutual fund company in 
Canada with over $7 billion in assets under management. As the 
person responsible for the day-to-day activities of this powerful 
force in the mutual fund industry, it's a wonder he has time for 
anything outside the hectic pace of corporate business. 

But according to Keith, having outside interests has helped 
him to be more balanced as a person. And it is, no doubt, a tight 
balancing act he maintains juggling his responsibilities as the 
head of a major mutual fund company, a Director of the 
Canadian Opera Company in Toronto, a parent of two univer- 
sity-aged sons, and, most recently, a member of Carleton's 
Presidential Advisory Council. 

Keith chose Carleton because he was studying political 
science and felt that a university situated in the nation's capital 
"could offer far more insight into politics in Canada and the 
political system in Ottawa." 

His first day on campus, Keith recalls he was doing what most 
frosh do, "cruising the tunnels," when he saw a notice inviting 

people to sign up for the campus theatre club, Sock'n'Buskin. 

"I had done quite a bit of amateur theatre during my youth 
and had found that it was a good way to meet people. As I was 
new to Ottawa and new to Carleton, I really didn't know very 
many people at all," remembers Keith. 

So he joined Sock'n'Buskin and found what he calls "a lively 
theatre company and a great cross-section of people." 

As a second-year student in 1969, Keith was president of 
Sock'n'Buskin when a young, Ottawa native named Dan 
Aykroyd joined the group. 

"I have the honour of having run the first theatre company 
that Dan ever became involved in," says Keith. 

Keith says he has one regret about his theatre work at 
Carleton, but it's not that his name isn't on the big screen. 

"I always had a regret that Carleton never built a real theatre. 
I'm sure that I echo the sentiments of a lot of people when I say 
that the Alumni Theatre was hell. It was a real test for any actor, 
producer, director, lighting or sound person," laughs Keith. 

But Aykroyd and cramped working spaces aren't his only 
memories of his theatre work while studying. 

"It was a tiring hobby because you had to cram in rehearsals 
as well as your work. Rehearsing for a full-length play is quite 
testing. There's a lot of work that goes into putting on a 
production, so it was fairly late nights I seem to remember," he 

Keith was one of the first grads to be approached by the 
University to join the Toronto Presidential Advisory Council. In 
existence since 1991, the Councils in eight cities meet with the 
President twice a year to discuss and exchange information on 
a variety of issues facing the University. 

Winter 1995« Carleton University Magazine »Page 14 

Keith says that the offer to sit on the 
Council "came out of the blue" noting that 
except for being on the University's mail- 
ing list, he had lost touch with Carleton 
while working in a variety of manage- 
ment positions in Hong Kong, Los Ange- 
les, Tehran, London and Singapore. 

"I thought, 'Do I need to do this sort of 
thing?' And then I said, 'Yes I do.' I enjoyed 
my time at Carleton and I have two 
children who are entering the university 
phase of their lives and I do have time. So 
I decided to accept the invitation and I 
haven't regretted it at all. In fact, it's been 
very interesting and it enables me to give 
something back to the University other 
than through a cheque," explains Keith. 

Carleton President Robin Farquhar 
comments that Keith has played a signifi- 
cant role as a member of his Advisory 
Council in Toronto. 

"Keith can always be counted on for 
frank, insightful suggestions which are 
particularly helpful because of his long 
relationship with the University and his 
considerable international business ex- 
perience. We have benefitted greatly be- 
cause of his involvement and support, " 
says Dr. Farquhar. 

A "business perspective" is where Keith 
feels he can make a contribution to Car- 
leton by providing the President "with an 
appreciation of the issues that businesses 
are facing both from the point of view of 
recruitment of people as well as the type 
of people we are looking for." Keith says 
he can also provide insight into the types 
of fundraising activities which would 
appeal to businesses, as well as those that 

"In the business community, we prob- 
ably see the world from a different per- 
spective than the president of a univer- 
sity. Our priorities may be slightly differ- 
ent. If Carleton is to be a contemporary 
institution, if it's to meet the needs of the 
stake holders, whether they're the stu- 
dents or the faculty or the people who 
benefit from research, then the President 
needs to have advisors outside the Uni- 
versity community," notes Keith. 

From his perspective, Keith says the 
people he's met on both the academic 
and administrative sides of Carleton, and 
the planning these two groups have un- 
dertaken "encourages me and makes me 
believe that we have a definite focus at 
the University, that we have a sense of 
where we want to be." 

Keith says he enjoys his work with the 

"It's put me back in touch with the 
University and made me much more 
aware of current issues relating to univer- 
sity education. I think it's provided me, as 
the opera does, with another outlet out- 
side my day-to-day work," he reflects. 

"I think that the university community 
in Canada needs a lot of support and 
there's no better group to provide that 
support than the people who benefitted 
from the learning experience that they 
had at their university." 

Dianne Salt, BJ/86, is a communications 
officer with the Department of the Solicitor 
General and Chair of the Editorial Advi- 
sory Committee for this magazine.

They agreed early on that if there wasn't a 
lot of money in it, it had better be fun! And 
those involved with the 20-year-old Great 
Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC) have 
been committed to that concept of theatre 
ever since. 

The GCTC was founded two dec- 
ades ago by a small group of Car- 
leton students and professors who 
believed Ottawa's arts community needed 
something more. The concept was quite 
simple, explains Larry McDonald, MA/68, 
Associate Professor of English at Carleton 
and one of the GCTC's original board 
members. He is the only founding mem- 
ber still with the company today. "We felt 

that in the capital of your own nation, you 
should be able to see and make plays 
about your own country and culture." 

So that's exactly what they did. The 
GCTC has presented 116 plays, 43 of 
which have been world premieres. The 
company has survived the critics, the 
crises, and the collapse of almost every 
other alternative theatre around them. 
And according to McDonald, the survival 

has been based on two things: a lot of 
luck, and a lot of loyalty. 

The early 70s was the heyday of the 
alternative theatre in Canada. At Carleton, 
McDonald says the desire to take part in 
the cultural revolution was natural and 
irresistible to a generation of students 
who had been politicized by such events 
as Canada's centennial celebrations and 
the Vietnam War. A group of students 
joined together to produce a new script 
by Carleton English professor and play- 
wright Robin Matthews, and they were 
hooked. No one wanted to stop. And so 
began the meetings to plan the birth of 
The Great Canadian Theatre Company. 

'And Robin, of course, inspired in the 
students a seriousness and a confidence 
and an ambition that paid no heed to the 
impossibility of founding a theatre com- 
pany despite the almost complete ab- 
sence of money, resources, experience 
and professional training," adds 

Another key player in the early years 
was Arthur Milner, BA/78, in those days a 
student of political science at Carleton, 
who became an actor with the company. 
"Our aim was always to be a professional 
theatre company," he says. Milner went 
on to hold numerous positions with the 
GCTC— from playwright to fundraiser— 
and is currently Artistic Director for the 

The GCTC began, with a meagre budget 
comprised of $500 yearly donations from 
each of the Board members and any other 
freebies or handouts that could be found. 
"They perfected the art of scrounging," 
says Jane Gardner, the GCTC's current 
administrator. "There was little pay, and 
the board would do whatever was needed 
to be done, literally banging the nails on 
the sets." 

Everyone acknowledges the company 
was short on experience but long on 
enthusiasm. McDonald laughs as he re- 
counts their very first production. "The 
play was a drama about Inuit life in the 
Arctic, which meant the actors were cos- 
tumed in parkas and sweating profusely 
in the cold Arctic winds, which were 
created for benefit of both audience and 
cast by fans blowing over big beer tubs 
filled with ice. Such are the origins of 
greatness in this country's cultural his- 
tory, if truth be told." 

The GCTC spent its first seven years 
searching for a home in the most unlikely 

Winter 1995* Carleton University Magazine »Page 16 

of locations. The company performed in 
the Ottawa South Firehall, the Blue Gar- 
denia Restaurant, the Quaker Meeting 
Hall on Fourth Avenue, and, of course, at 
the Alumni Theatre at Carleton. 

And throughout the early years, the 
company called upon Carleton whenever 
it needed a little help along the way. Plays 
were co-produced with Carleton's Theatre 
Coordinator, Associate Professor Douglas 
Campbell, thus doubling the budget and 
qualifying the company for cheaper rental 
rates at the theatre. Carleton also pur- 
chased small-cast shows and plays for 
young audiences that the company put on 
the road. Even the GCTC's photocopying 
budget was occasionally subsidized by the 
English department. 

In 1982, the GCTC claimed its own 
home in an old truck repair garage on 
Gladstone Avenue. At the time, the leap 
to bricks and mortar was monumental for 
the company. "We felt like a bunch of 
kids, trying to act grown-up," says Milner. 
"It seemed so absurd to think we were 
looking for $400,000 for a new building." 

And, once again, Carleton's contribu- 
tions were significant. Phil Sharp, a 
professor in the School of Architecture, 
used great imagination and great frugality 
to create a wonderful space for the GCTC. 
The new theatre opened with the pre- 
miere of Sandinista!, a large-scale, pro- 

duction with music by Ian Tamblyn. The 
next year, the play toured nationally and 
won international recognition. 

The unique set-up of the company has 
contributed greatly to its longevity. 
McDonald credits Robin Matthews, now 
retired from Carleton's Department of 
English, with ensuring that a theatre board 
made up of both artists and community 
members was created. "Robin was deeply 
suspicious of anarchism and wholly com- 
mitted to democracy. He recognized the 
need for collectivity as well as continuing 
authority. He insisted on that balance, 
and at various times, we drew on both for 

Today, as the GCTC celebrates its 20th 
anniversary, the successes and struggles 
continue. To mark the milestone, the 
1994-95 season consists entirely of new 
Canadian plays. "New plays represent the 
future of theatre. That's where the risk is 
-and the excitement," explains Milner. 
Included in the season's program is a new 
collaboration of Larry McDonald, Patrick 
McDonald (now Artistic Director at Van- 
couver's renowned Green Thumb Thea- 
tre) and Arthur Milner entitled Cheap 
Shots. McDonald describes it as a reunion 
project for the three long-time members. 

Still, there's no doubt the GCTC is 
changing. McDonald and Milner are the 
only early members still actively involved. 

Larry McDonald 

There's a lot of new blood, and as a result, 
a bit of a shift away from the Carleton 
connection. But both members are quick 
to say this kind of change is good. "The 
roots of the GCTC are still fed by the 
principles and social vision that grew out 
of Carleton," says McDonald. "I think 
another measure of success is the ability 
to grow and change and have turnover in 
personnel, and still maintain the original 
sense of purpose and vision. We're 
proud of the company's ability to attract 
new energy." 

And the connections with Carleton will 
always remain in the unique history of the 
GCTC. "We still have stronger relations 
with Carleton than we do with Ottawa U," 
explains Gardner. "And that's ironic since 
Ottawa U has a theatre department. But it's 
the links Carleton professors made with 
the theatre that now establish the links that 
their students have." 

When asked about the future of the 
GCTC, McDonald seems guardedly opti- 
mistic. "It's difficult to say. I think we've 
established our artistic credentials very 
well," he says. "We're poised with the 
talent and expertise to make a move into 
bigger space, larger productions, expanded 
audiences and, no doubt, there's a vacuum 
to fill in the city. It's what we ought to do, 
the community needs it. I guess it comes 
back to luck and loyalty." ^jj'

ear Mr. Macerollo, we have 
(reviewed your academic 
records and regret to inform 
you that you have not been selected for 
admission to Carleton University." 

How could this be? I knew it would be 
tough but tougher than Queen's and 
Waterloo where I had been accepted? 
Thanks to some pushing on my part (my 
file was confused with another person), 
my rejection from Carleton would not be 
my last memory of a truly fine academic 

A whole world opened up to me at 
Carleton and I was excited about doing 
my undergrad degree here. The opportu- 
nities to pursue almost any interest were 
possible: the courses, the societies, the 
clubs, the lectures, the pubs. It was great! 

At Carleton, I was fortunate to experi- 
ence almost everything that university life 
could offer a student— a residence, a qual- 
ity education, a diverse social environ- 
ment and a democratic community that 
encouraged participation in University 

Carleton was never strong on the 
administrative matters. In the final weeks 
before my graduation I found out that my 
ethnic background was about to change 
to Scottish (MacErollo) from Italian\ Slovak 

But by my final year, it was just part of 
the experience. 

Some of the memories that come to mind from Carleton 

Facing the existence of God and the meaning of meaning. Julian Wolfe, my philosophy 
prof regularly challenged not so much my Roman Catholic background but my ability 
to think critically.

The Carty Bequest 
Established with 
$1.2 Million Gift 

he new Carleton University roundation received its 
first major gift this winter with a bequest of $1.2 
million from the estate of Kathleen C. Carty (1895-1994). 

Under the terms of the bequest the donation will be 
endowed to set up The Carty Bequest. Interest will be used at 
the discretion of the University President for activities that are 
determined to be important to the University's mission. 
These include, but are not limited to, payment of bursaries 
and scholarships, grants in aid of research, the purchase of 
books or works of art, the sponsorship of lectures or special 
events, support for publishing, and participation in a capital 

A unique aspect of the bequest is that no activity shall be 
supported for more than three consecutive years, after which 
it shall not be supported again in whole or in part until a 
further five years have elapsed. 

Carleton President Robin Farquhar says the Carty 
Bequest will give Carleton great flexibility as the Univer- 
sity tries to respond to a wide variety of needs. 

"Through this very exciting, well thought out donation, 
we'll be able to direct resources to areas that are in need of a 
shot in the arm, as well as to new areas of opportunity that 
we would otherwise have to pass up because of financial 
constraints," he commented. "We're indebted to the Carty 
family both for their great generosity, and for their breadth 
of vision." 

The donation is a continuation of the Carty family's 
tradition of support for the University started by the late 
Kathleen Carty, in the 1950s. Three bursaries already bear 
the Carty name at Carleton, the first established in 1957 in 
memory of her son Maurice, the second established in 1964 
in memory of her husband Edward, and the third established 
in 1983 in memory of her son Desmond. 

Her son Bower Carty is now the sole surviving 
member of the family. "Over the years, we have ben- 
efited from our connections in the Ottawa community," 
he said. "We felt strongly that, in turn, our support 
should stay in this community and, through this bequest, 
we are delighted to have the opportunity to do so." 

Bower Carty (centre) is presented with a certificate in 
recognition of the establishment of The Carty Bequest 
by friend and Carleton volunteer Ross Cruikshank 
(left) and President Robin Farquhar. 

He has indicated to the University that he intends to add 
to the bequest in the years ahead, leaving a proud legacy 
that will preserve the Carty family name in the Ottawa 
community for generations to come. 

The Carty family is connected with a number of 
pioneer families in and around Ottawa. Kathleen Carry's 
great-great-grandfather was a captain in the Royal Navy 
who settled on a land grant in March immediately 
following the War of 1812. Another established a harness 
business in Ottawa, but soon retired to amass a consider- 
able group of properties, many of them downtown. As an 
investment, he built the former Windsor Hotel, which 
became the first place in Canada to cook meals with 

Born in 1895, Kathleen Carty was the eldest daughter 
of F.A. Heney, who served in many public and voluntary 
bodies. He was the Reeve of Nepean, chairman of the 
Suburban Roads Commission, chairman of the Board of 
Nepean High School, president of the Board of Trade, 
president of the Laurentian Club, and treasurer of the 
Central Canada Exhibition Association. Mrs. Heney also 
served on the boards of a number of social and welfare 

Educated privately, Kathleen Carty was married in 
1917 to Edward Carty, an engineer who emigrated to 
Canada from Ireland. Throughout her life, she was an 
indefatigable worker who carried on her family's tradi- 
tion of community service, but on a more private level 
than either of her parents.

She rejected most offers to serve on 
boards of community organizations, but 
was a life member of many, including 
the Children's Village, the Canadian 
Red Cross Society, and the Grace and 
Perley hospitals. 

She was a well-known expert grower 
of african violets, thousands of which she 
raised and sold for the benefit of the 
Unitary Services Committee. An 
accomplished kneed leworker, she 
knitted countless scarves, socks, toys 
and baby clothes for church bazaars and 
hospital auxiliaries. 

She also enjoyed painting and 
woodcarving, and wrote several articles 
for American and Canadian magazines. 

Bower Carty picked up where his 
mother left off, serving as a volunteer 
for many organizations, including USC 
Canada, the United Way of Ottawa- 
Carleton, the Canadian Centre for 
Arms Control and Disarmament, and 
the Canadian Red Cross Society. 

He has also been actively involved in 
the Scout movement at the local, 
national and international levels. He 
was a member of the World Scout 
Committee from 1970-77, and served as 
its chairman from 1975-77. 

"The Carty family has been quietly 
contributing to the well-being and 
development of our community for 
many years," says Dr. Farquhar. "We as 
a university, as well as the community- 
at-large, are fortunate to have people of 
this calibre among us and we will always 
be grateful for their help."

Carleton Says Thank You 

Carleton's Chancellor Arthur Kroeger and President Robin Farquhar 
hosted a thank you reception for more than 200 of the University's most 
generous supportets in the West Block of Parliament Hill on November 17, 
1994. It was an opportunity for donors to mingle with one another and to 
meet some of the faculty members whose areas benefit directly from private 

Among the guests were individual donors who are members of the 
Henry Marshall Tory Society, a body offering special recognition to Carle- 
ton's major supporters. Also in attendance were several local business 
people whose companies support scholarships and other Univetsity pro- 
grams, or hire students enrolled in co-op programs. 

President Farquhar took the opportunity to introduce special guest 
Michael Cowpland, a long-time Carleton supporter and alumnus who has 
agreed to serve as Chair of the University's up-coming Capital Campaign. 

Dr. Farquhar noted that the teception was Carleton's way of thanking 
supporters for their generosity and reminding them that their support has a 
tremendous impact on the University. He added that the reception was 
made possible by the generosity of Marriott Corporation, which donated 
food and staff for the occasion. Wine was also donated by Chateau des 
Chatmes and Pelee Island Winery for the event.

University Art Exhibit 

Goes to Washington 

Carleton played a prominent pan in organizing a highly 
acclaimed exhibition of serigraphs by renowned Canadian 
artist, Alex Coville, which opened at the Canadian Embassy 
in Washington, D.C. on November 30, 1994. 

Entitled "Alex Colville: Being Seen - The Serigraphs," 
the exhibition was organized by Michael Bell, Director of 
Carleton's Art Gallery, and had been on display in the 
gallery earlier in the fall. 

Its trip to Washington was sponsored by Northern Telecom 
Ltd., which has become the only company to sponsor two 
exhibits in the Embassy's Art Gallery Program. 

An exclusive reception co-hosted by Raymond Chretien 
Canada's Ambassador to the United States, and Jean Monty, 
President and Chief Executive Officer of Northern Telecom 
Ltd., was held to mark the opening of the exhibition at the 

Guests included senators, congressmen, highly placed 
White House officials, senior executive officers from 
industry and business, Michael Bell, and Carleton Universi- 
ty's President, Dr. Robin Farquhar, who spoke briefly to the 
gathering of dignitaries, 

Special thanks goes to Alex Colville for loaning works 
from his personal archives without which the exhibition 
would not have been possible. As well, thanks go to a

number of other private lenders of rare early works, and to 
Marilyn and David Burnett of The Drabinsky Gallery who 
conceived the idea of mounting such a exhibition. 

Sincere appreciation also goes to Mr. Chretien and Mr. 
Monty for allowing Carleton University representatives to 
"share the stage" at this prestigious event, and to the Public 
Affairs staff of the Embassy who were extremely helpful, 
particularly Carleton alumnus Curtis Barlow, Cultural 
Counsellor for the Embassy. Following the official opening 
reception, the Embassy kindly allowed the University to 
host a reception and private showing of the exhibition for 
Carleton alumni, which was extremely well attended. 

Planned Gifts: A New Way to Give to Carleton 

John Coo 

You don't have to be a 
millionaire to give like one to 
Carleton University. 

That's one message that 
Carleton's new Planned Giving 
Officer, John Coo, wants to get 
across to as many people as he 

"People who have been 
working for 30 years or so may 
not have a spectacular annual 
income and think they can't 
make a large donation because 
it would be coming out of their pocket," he explains. "But 
through wills, insurance policies, annuities, and other estate 
planning vehicles such as trusts, people who can't make a 
major gift out of annual income may still be able to leave a 
large legacy for something they care about." 

Planned gifts may be used to support a specific need of 
the university, fund a program of personal interest to the 
donor, or be directed to the general endowment fund. 
Because such gifts are typically in the tens of thousands of 
dollars, says John, "they can make a significant difference to 
the University." 

Planned gifts may also be in the donor's best interest, he 
adds. "By planning your gift, you can maximize your tax 

advantages. And since Carleton has a crown foundation, 
there are even greater advantages that can be offered." 

John recently came to Carleton from the Red Cross 
Society, where he had developed a planned giving program 
over the past four years. The University has reached the point 
where it makes sense to focus on planned gifts, he says. "Our 
alumni are now coming of age so it is now possible for us to 
coordinate and actively promote planned giving in a way that 
wouldn't have been possible 10 or 20 years ago. 

"We're trying to build up a substantial level of endow- 
ment as a natural and necessary step in the university's 
development, to give Carleton the strength that older 
institutions have."

and the Blues 
Raise $150,000 

Brothers Band 
for Garleton 

Dan Aykroyd, one of Carleton's 
most famous alumni, made a 
triumphant return to Ottawa and his 
alma materl&st fall. The highly- 
regarded comedic actor, well known for 
his roles in The Blues Brothers, 
Ghostbusters, and Driving Miss Daisy, 
among others, was presented with the 
key to the city by Ottawa Mayor 
Jacquelin Holzman on October 13, 
which was officially named Dan 
Aykroyd Day in his honour. 

Then on October 15, he led the 
Blues Brothers Band in an incredible 
performance before a capacity crowd of 
more than 2,000 people in the Opera of 
the National Arts Centre. Featured 
performers included Jim Belushi, Paul 
Shaffer, Eddie Floyd, Lou Marini, 
Steve Cropper, Steve Potts, Matt 
Murphy, Larry Thurston, Al Rubin, 
Birch Johnson, Leon Pendarvis, and 
The Natural Queens. 

Dan Aykroyd assumed all expenses 
for the performance so that the pro- 
ceeds — more than $150,000— could go 
to the University's Capital Campaign. 

Dan attended Carleton from 1969- 
1972, leaving for Toronto's Second 

City comedy troupe just one credit 
short of his Bachelor's degree. (Last 
summer, he officially became a 
Carleton graduate when he was granted 
an honorary degree by the University.) 

"I didn't reject the University, and 
I'm sorry I didn't stay to finish my 
degree," he says. "The knowledge and 
the writing skills I picked up at 
Carleton have been very important to 
me in my career." 

Throughout his three years at 
Carleton, Dan was involved with the 
University's student theatre group, 
Sock'n'Buskin. His visit to Ottawa 
coincided with Carleton's Homecom- 
ing, and he used the opportunity to 
take in a Sock'n'Buskin reunion as well 
as other Homecoming events. 

"We're very proud of Dan 
Aykroyd," says Carleton President 
Robin Farquhar. "He's made a great 
contribution to his profession, and 
we're honoured that, despite the great 
demands on his time, he remembered 
Carleton and came back with his family 
and friends to help us out. They really 
did a phenomenal job."

50 years of football 

The 49th year of Carleton University 
football proved to be an exciting one 
for all Raven fans and players. Coach 
Don Smith's team was one of the most 
competitive in years, remaining in the 
hunt for a play-off birth until the final 
game of the season. We congratulate 
the team and fans for their efforts in 

1994 and look forward with great an- 
ticipation to the 50th year of Carleton 

We extend our thanks to our out- 
going President, Bruce MacGregor. Bruce 
retires as President after eight years at the 
helm. We're happy to report that we will 
be able to draw upon Bruce's leadership 
and guidance as he has chosen to remain 
on the society's executive. 

I am the new President. You may 
recall I was the starting "placement holder" 
for a couple of seasons on the glorious 
Raven teams of the early 80s and have 
been a member of the executive since 
1987. I am looking forward to my new 
responsibilities and to meeting as many 
members as possible as we celebrate 50 
years of football at Carleton. 

I'd also like to welcome to the execu- 
tive Kevin McKerrow, who was a member 
of the offensive line, affectionately known 
as the McHogs, in the mid-80s. 

The Old Crow Society continued its 
tradition of selecting the CIAU Coach of 
the Year Award this past November dur- 
ing Vanier Cup festivities. This year, Brian 
Towriss of the University of Saskatch- 
ewan Huskies was chosen. 

The Old Crow Society thanks mem- 
bers who have contributed to the "Shoes, 
Shirts and Shorts" Club— the objective is to 
provide a new pair of cleats, team shirt 
and shorts for each player making the 

1995 team. 

We are requesting an annual member- 
ship fee of $25, or whatever you are able 
to contribute. Help us help the team.

Toasting the holiday season 

The third annual Pre-Chrismas Cheer bash was held on December 8 : 
Elephant & Castle in downtown Vancouver. Over 40 grads came out for a little 
"cheer" and some food to toast the holiday season. The alumni group was well 
represented from the 1960s right through to the most recent grads of 1994. Old 
friends and new friends met and got caught up on news and exchanged all 
manner of information both serious and trivial. It was a night of conviviality and 
conversation and enhanced with several door prizes. 

For those who could not attend, we hope to see you at the next Vane 
Branch event in the spring. Watch for our flyer.

National Capital 

Active fall for Ottawa grads 

The National Capital Branch has been very active 
this fall. As the summer was drawing to a close we 
were pleased to co-sponsor with the Department of 
Athletics, the annual Carleton alumni and staff golf 
tournament. There were 166 golfers and over $5,000 
was turned over to athletics. 

We kicked off the alumni political season in 
Ontario with a debate at the National Press Club in 
Ottawa between candidates for the position of Ottawa 
Mayor. The debate, chaired by Peter Van Dusen, was 
sold out and the media marked this as the beginning 
of the campaign. 

Coinciding with the change of executive on the 
National Alumni Council, the National Capital Branch 
selected a new President for 1994-95, and I am pleased 
to have been chosen. 

The National Capital Branch sponsored several 
Carleton students who participated in international 
programs this year. One of these students was Sabrina 
Natasha who travelled on an exchange trip to Benin, 
Africa, with the World University Service Canada. On 
November 8, at our Branch meeting, Sabrina provided 
an informed and fascinating look at life in Africa and 
the work Canadians and others perform there. 

Finally, on December 6, at our monthly meeting, 
the Branch celebrated the Christmas season and began 
plans for the New Year. We hope to continue many 
traditions started under previous leadership-and per- 
haps start a few more. We are looking forward to 
meeting many more grads at various events in the 
coming year!

Skating at the Oval and much more 

In November we had a successful Murder Mystery Dinner in 
conjunction with the University of Ottawa alumni branch in 
Calgary. We had such a good response that the event sold out 
quickly so not all those who were interested were able to be 
accommodated. We would like to repeat the event in 1995 but 
at a larger venue. 

For 1995, we are again participating in the Pan Alumni Skating 
party which is on March 26 and is held at the Olympic Oval. BE 
SURE TO MARK THE DATE. It's a great family event and last year 
there were participants from over 20 alumni associations. Watch 
your mail for more information coming soon. 

The Calgary Branch is planning an event in the spring with 
a local Calgary celebrity, who also happens to be a journalism 
grad from Carleton... again, watch your mail for details. Some 
alumni indicated they were interested in starting a breakfast club 
that would meet regularly. If you are interested call Doug 
Cameron at 278-2549. To get involved, call me or Peter Campbell 
at 251-3823. See you at the Oval in March!

Branch's wine tasting event November 26 at the 
Officer's Mess of the Royal Artillery. 


Carleton romances Chile 

On the evening of Saturday, November 26, 16 Halifax 
alumni and guests gathered at the stately and historic 
Officers Mess of Royal Artillery (RA) Park, secluded at the 
foot of Citadel Hill in downtown Halifax. 

Featured at this first official event in my tenure as 
President of the Branch were the fine Chilean wines of 
Concha and Toro and their representative Carl Nugent of 
Nugent and Associates. The evening began with an 
introduction and welcome, followed by a thoroughly 
enjoyable slide show and presentation by Mr. Nugent. 
Then came the best part— the tasting. 

We'll meet again in February for a pub night.

Some of the 37 enthusiastic attendees are shown above at 
the first Kingston event. 


First event gets rave reviews 

After many months of planning, and through the efforts of a 
small dedicated group of Kingston area alumni, one of Carle- 
ton's newest Branches held its inaugural gathering on Novem- 
ber 4, 1994. 

This first "meet and greet," held at Correction Canada's 
Regional Staff College, attracted 37 alumni for an evening of 
libation and conversation. There was much reminiscing, re- 
newed acquaintances, and stark realizations (two moms were 
surprised to learn that they had spent many an hour chatting at 
the neighbourhood playground, never realizing they were 
fellow Carleton grads!). 

Many thanks to the committee for its efforts and especially 
to Faith Avis for providing snacks for the group. 

Now that we have an active executive and enthusiastic 
organizational working group, we hope to have regular func- 
tions in and around Kingston (and as far as Gananoque!) in the 
future. If you would like to get on our list, please contact Mark 
Horton at 544-8206 (h), or 542-4554 (w) and I will be in touch.

Chasing away the winter blahs 

The Montreal Branch of the Alumni Association has two 
exciting activities to look forward to early this year. 

First, on Thursday, February 23, we invite all grads and their 
guests to join us for our annual evening of great dining and 
comedy at Beezer's Restaurant and Comedy Works. Last year, 
35 alumni braved the frigid temperatures and loved it! It's a great 
way to chase away the winter blahs. You should have your flyer 
with details, but if not, call me. 

On Tuesday, April 25 we'll take a tour of the Quebec Liquor 
Commission's warehouse in Montreal followed by a wine and 
cheese on the premises. A flyer with all the details will be mailed 
to you shortly. Any questions may be directed to me at 485-3552.

English Grads Society 

Alumni at the fair 

On November 26, 40 Carleton English grads went to the fair- 
- Bartholomew Fair that is. Although we couldn't all see the 
action from our vantage point in the "Pit," and the play was long, 
those who went the distance were rewarded with an impromptu 
awards ceremony put on by the cast, and refreshments. We 
agreed the students, led by the indomitable Douglas Campbell 
directing, did a credible job with a difficult piece of theatre and 
it was good to see so many grads interested in a Ben Jonson 

We've got more theatre on our calendar for May 10 when 
members of the English Grads Society are invited to join 
celebrations at the Great Canadian Theatre Company's produc- 
tion of our own Larry McDonald's Cheap Shots. It will be 
"Carleton Night" at the GCTC which marks its 20th birthday this 
year (see Jane Petricic's article on page 16). You will receive 
notice in April and I suggest you sign on early for this very 
exciting event.

Ravens fight for status 

Hockey alumni have been ac- 
tive in support of the Carleton 
hockey team. Money has been 
raised for t-shirts and to support the 
club. Efforts will continue and 
money raised through the students' 
referendum will be kept in trust 
until the official status of the team 
is known. 

In the meantime, this year's 
club continues its winning tradition 
in the Ottawa Senior League. Games 
are complimented with 15 tough 
exhibition games against college 
and university teams including Al- 
gonquin, RMC, Northern College, 
Potsdam State, and Northwood 
Prep. The club is also entered in a 
Quebec college tournament during 
the Christmas break. 

We ask all alumni interested in 
supporting the hockey initiative to 
make their views known to Carle- 
ton University.

and filmmaker honoured 

A total of 389 graduates received their 
degrees at Carleton's 102nd convocation 
ceremonies held Sunday, November 20, 
1994, at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in 

This number represents just a small 
portion of the 960 students who graduated 
this fall and will join the ranks of more than 
60,000 Carleton alumni worldwide. 

Alumni volunteers from Carleton's var- 
sity swimming chapter and the National 
Capital branch were on site at the NAC to 
meet the new grads and frame their 
degrees. The diploma framing service, 
launched in 1990, was once again enor- 
mously successful with approximately 
200 frames being sold. Revenues go to 
the Alumni Services Account. 

This year's honorary degree recipients 
were The Honourable Mitchell W. Sharp, 
personal advisor to Prime Minister Jean 
Chretien and former federal cabinet min- 
ister, and Alanis Obomsawin, a celebrated 
documentary filmmaker and musician. 

Mr. Sharp was elected to the House of 
Commons and appointed Minister of Trade 
and Commerce in 1963 after almost 20 
years in the public service. As a member 
of the cabinet under both Lester Pearson 
and Piene Trudeau,he also held positions 
of Minister of Finance, Secretary of State 
and President of the Privy Council. He 
resigned from Parliament in 1978. Re- 
cently, he accepted the position as a Spe- 
cial Advisor to the Prime Minister on ethics 
in government for a salary of $1 per year. 

Mr. Sharp received the degree of Doc- 
tor of Laws, honoris causa, in the morn- 
ing ceremony. 

Alanis Obomsawin was awarded a 
Doctor of Literature, honoris causa, in the 
afternoon ceremony for her work in pre- 
serving and performing traditional First 
Nations songs and culture. 

Ms. Obomsawin has produced and 
directed films for the National Film Board 
since 1967. Her work has focussed on 
issues of social justice and change for 
native people in Canada. Her most recent 
film, Kanesake. 270 years of Resistance, 
has met critical acclaim in Europe and 
recently won top honours at the Toronto 
Festival of Festivals. She has been singing 
professionally since the late 1950s and 
has toured Canada, the U.S. and Europe. 

The Honourable Mitchell Sharp, honorary degree recipient at the November 16 
convocation, is shown with Carleton's current Chancellor, Arthur Kroeger, left, and 
former Chancellor Gordon Roberson, right.

their world premieres recently. 

Serenade (1992), a work for clarinet, 
bassoon and string orchestra, premiered 
at the University of Western Ontario on 
November 14, 1994. Ft in Arcadia ego

Moscovitch takes over at a time of 
change in the School of Social Work. A 
new undergraduate degree program, the 
Bachelor of Social Work (BSW), was 
introduced in 1994, and next year the 
School will launch a redeveloped one- 
year graduate program with the BSW as 
the primary requirement. 

In addition, the School will be intro- 
ducing an innovative method of teaching 
in its graduate program. The Inquiry and 
Action Learning method, used in McMaster 
University's medical and nursing schools, 
emphasizes small groups of students who 
work with a faculty facilitator to develop 
individual programs of study around spe- 
cific issues. 

Moscovitch graduated from Carleton 
with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1969- He 
has also been educated at Essex Univer- 
sity and the London School of Economics.

The award was given to Professor van 
Vlasselaer in recognition of his academic 
leadership over 25 years in the Department 
of French at Carleton, his career as a music 
critic (he's written more than 2,000 arti-

department chair Carter Elwood regards 
as a substantial body of academic achieve- 

Many of these publications have been

A Carleton professor is helping to 
sketch the future of design in Canada. 

Jacques Giard, the former director of 
the School of Industrial Design, was re-

federal government study, and appointed 
to lead one of four provincial task groups 
studying how design is taught in Ontario. 

Currently on sabbatical, Giard says

economic importance of design-broadly 
defined to include architecture, landscape 
architecture, industrial or product design, 
interior design and graphic design.

The new Carleton University Development Corporation 
building under construction on campus will be ready by 
the fall. 

New CUDC building to 
open in August 

Despite a three-month construction delay, Carleton's 
new $7.5 million Technology and Transfer Centre is 
expected to open for business on schedule on August 1, 


The four-story complex, located on the east side of 
the campus close to the gymnasium, is already 75 percent 
leased and is expected to have full occupancy by the fall. 

According to spokesperson Drew Love, Vice-Presi- 
dent, (Development), Carleton University Development 
Corporation (CUDC), the response by the community has 
exceeded the group's targeted goals. 

A wide spectrum of private-sector organizations have 
leased space in the new building, including the Canadian 
Association of Occupational Therapists, a technology- 
based company called Ingenia, CPRT, a research testing 
agency, T-Base Corps, a computer-based communica- 
tions equipment firm, and a Treats food franchise. 

One of the most interesting firms to occupy space in 
the centre is Forintek, a company which conducts 
experiemental research on the effects of fire on building 
materials. The company has agreed to share its research 
equipment with students and faculty in the Engineering 
labs on campus. According to Love, this type of partner- 
ship between industry and the University is exactly the 
goal the CUDC set out to achieve in constructing the 

In addition to providing space for private companies, 
the centre will house the CUDC offices, the University's 
parking department, Carleton University Press, the cam- 
pus pharmacy, and the Carleton Professional Develop- 
ment Centre, currently based off-campus on Green Valley 
Drive in Ottawa.

Gold medal in accounting 
to Carleton grad 

Carleton graduate Kate Burgoin, BCom/93, credits 
i excellent education from Carleton" for helping her 
le gold medal for Canada and Ontario in the 1994 
ional chartered accounting exams. 
An accountant in the auditing department at 
Ottawa office of Deloitte & Touche, Kate scored 374 out 
of a possible 400 points, beating out more than 3,000 
aspiring chartered accountants from across Canada. 

The four-day Canadian Institute of Chartered Ac- 
countants Uniform Final Examination (LIFE) is the culmi- 
nation of three or more years of study into complex 
accounting, auditing, tax and related business issues. The 
UFE's difficulty is reflected in the fact that only 53.5 
percent of the writers across the country were successful. 
Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top 
students nationally and provincially. 

Earning the gold medal will "open up a lot of doors" 
in the accounting profession, says Kate. She also hopes 
it helps to enhance Carleton University's reputation for 

"I've always felt very positively about Carleton," says 
Kate. "It has an excellent School of Business." 

In addition to studying at Carleton, Kate worked part- 
time in the accounting department at the University's 
business office and as a teaching assistant in her third and 
fourth year. She hopes to continue her association with 
Carleton as a sessional instructor in accounting at the 
School of Business.

Muni Frumhartz 1923-1994 

Professor Muni Frumhartz, a well known faculty

1994, after a long illness. 

Professor Frumhartz earned degrees at the University 
of Toronto, and Columbia University, coming to Carleton 
in 1956 as a Lecturer in Sociology. He retired as Full 
Professor in 1987. 

He played a major role in shaping the character of the Department of Sociology 
and Anthropology, and of Carleton University. He served on the Board of 
Governors (1968-72), on the Senate (1963-65, 1967-72, 1974-78 and 1981-84), on

as President of the Carleton University Academic Staff Association (1978-79), as 
Chair of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (1973-74), 
and was on numerous University committees and working groups. 

His friends and colleagues all remember Professor Frumhartz as the 
consummate critic and debater, whose questions and comments in Senate on 
issues of the day "kept the University on its toes." His memoranda and his 
interventions consistently illustrated his caring attention to policy and opera- 
tions within the University. What may not be quite so well remembered, but 
what marked Muni Frumhartz in the minds of all his friends, was his enduring 
open mindedness, his wry sense of humour and his sheer grit.

Ted Felbel in Without Rockets, produced and co-written by Keith Tomasek. 

Grad nominated for Genie Award 

Carleton University Film Studies graduate Keith Tomasek, BA/89, was 
nominated in 1994 by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television for a 
Genie Award in the category "Best Short Film" for the film Without Rockets. 
Tomasek co-wrote the film with Gary Yates who also directed the film. 

Shot in Churchill, Manitoba, the film has been described as "alternately sad 
and poignant and absurdly hilarious." However Tomasek prefers to describe 
the film as a "cross between Barton Fink and a Coyote/Road Runner cartoon." 

The Genie Award nomination came as a surprise to Tomasek, but he adds 
that he was even more surprised when he unexpectedly received a call from an 
Italian broadcaster. "I woke up one morning to an overseas call from an Italian 
television executive who wanted to buy die film," says Tomasek. The call 
resulted in a sale to an Italian pay TV station. 

"Director Gary Yates and I made the film with an international audience in 
mind and the films success shows we were right on track," adds Tomasek. 

The film was also a hit in Switzerland at the Locarno Film Festival where 
Without Rockets was one of just a few Canadian films chosen to compete in the 
prestigious Leopards of Tomorrow competition. 

Tomasek lives in Hudson, Quebec, where he is currently writing a screenplay 
and looking for other films to produce.

Rind other projects, determined by 
the Alumni Council, such as new 
scholarships for students. 

Let your v 
savings take off.

distance, and as a plan member you'll receive 
or earn: 

• 20% off the 3 numbers you spend most 
on each month, in Canada and the U.S.

anywhere in the world 

• Savings that are in effect 24 hours a day, 
7 days a week, including Calling Card™

your GM Card Earnings or your AIR MILES™* 
travel miles. It's your choice! 

Help the benefits land 
at Carleton.
